I don't like the Quick Access view when I open File Explorer. Is there a way to turn this off?
Ken you can certainly return to a file list by going to the View menu option and selecting the Navigation pane and unchecking the Navigation Pane option. That will remove that left side column.
But if you would like the Navigation Pane to remain but don't want the Quick Access section to be on top you have another option. I don't like the extra items showing at the top. Some people do.
If you want to hide this section all you need to do is Open File Explorer, then select View > Options from the Ribbon. Select Change Options and Search, A Folder Options window will open. Click the “Open File Explorer” drop-down menu at top, then select the “This PC” option. Click OK and you’re done!
Now when you open File Explorer "This PC" section will appear. If you for some reason still want to look at the other sections simply scroll to them.
